Yes, the GCF of a # doesn't have to be either of the 2 #'s. In the case of 16 and 42 the GCF is 2 because that is the greatest # that both the numbers are equally divisible by. If it was 16 and 48, then the GCF would be 16 because that is the highest # both are equally divisible by.

### What is the greatest common factor of 1218 and 42?

First, using your 2 divisibility rule, we find that both are even, therefore both are divisible by 2. Now, using the 3 divisibility rule, we know that 1 + 2 + 8 + 1 = 12, and 4 + 2 = 6, both multiples of 3. Thus, it must be divisible by 3 and 2, and it must divisible by 6! If so, then dividing both by 6 yields:1218/6 = 203, 42/6 = 7.Now both values are prime, therefore, 6 is the GCF of 1218 and 42.
